Everyone's favorite question to ask while getting tattooed is how did i get started? Its a pretty funny story actually. I've been an artist my entire life as far back as i can remember. I come from a family of artists--so drawing is in my DNA. I came home one night and my neighbor had a kit in her basement tattooing someone. So, i did what every normal person would do. I said let me see that real quick ... and right then and there, without thinking twice i gave myself a tattoo on my forearm. Is it still there to this day, and if you ask me (or my clients) it isn't so bad! It will stay on my arm forever as a constant reminder of my progress and to show that with time, hard work, passion and determination that you can do anything you want to!
I'm happy to say, thirteen years later, i am no longer tattooing in my neighbors basement and have developed my passion into a working business, evolved as an artist and established my own style! My current project is pouring my skills, lessons and knowledge into other women and creating a girl gang of amazing artists, with great customer service and even better vibes and energy. I love working with clients to help them design custom tattoos to help them commemorate people, places, events, stories and milestones in their life.
With art in my veins...music, crafts and anything involving expression have always been at the core of my universe. In 2018, I started out on my journey to becoming a knowledgeable and skilled tattoo artist, and starting an apprenticeship under one of my closest friends was just a bonus! Social media has made the journey seem like a breeze, but let me tell you...this has been one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. With each piece, I learn not only more about the art of of tattooing, but about myself as an artist. Some of my favorite designs include anything with a lot of small lines, tiny tattoos and unique visions from my clients (We LOVE custom pieces at PrettyInInk). I’m excited to work with you on bringing your visions to life through the art of tattooing.
